who has the bigger upside---Pekovic or Kanter?
 
Pekovic was a monster last year but he's just warming up. Kanter barely played but he's put the work in this offseason and looks ready to be unleased like the Greek God that he is.

Who do you got?

Kanter.

Younger, better touch, more athletic, and lots of room to improve. Pekovic is significantly better right now though.

Uh who the hell would say Kanter??? Pek has proven he's a borderline all star already right out of the gate and does pretty much everything well. Kanter has very good potential but hasn't proven shit yet and has a tendency to disappear. I think Pek has more upside because he's shown us a lot more and doesn't seem near tapped out yet.

Borderline all-star? 26 in his 2nd year isn't exactly right out of the gate. You do know what upside means right?

Proved he was a rotation player on a west playoff team, a strong defender, hard worker and potentially an elite rebounder.

Really?

Kanter just started playing ball a few years ago. He was the youngest guy in the league last year after not being able to play the year before at all nor had a summer league or a regular training camp or practice schedule during the year. You could see his improvement from game to game and based on the reports of their scrimmage he's came a long ways since the end of the season.

You pretty much explained why it's Kanter who has the bigger upside :lol

Kanter is going to be very solid throughout his career. I think Pekovic has more upside tho. I understand that Kanter has time on his side, but being younger doesn't mean he has more upside. I could see Pekovic having a season of 20PPG, even playing with Love. I imagine he'll be scoring 17 and up, with 10-11RPB. He's also just a very strong post presence.

I don't see Kanter being much of a scorer. Maybe he'll have some 15PPG seasons in his career, but I see him getting them off rebounds and in transition and the like. I don't see him being much of an offensive force. I've heard that he's a talented passer, tho I don't know.

They say he's running the floor for dunks. Playing the pick and roll. Exploding above the rim near the basket. Passing out of the post and hitting 18 footers all while not getting pushed around despite the weight loss. As I said last year I think he could be better than the people's choice of the second coming Favors. He showed improvement every game. He's a hard worker.

Pekovic's improvement will mostly come from more minutes at his age. Kanter's will come from increased time and experience.
